The shooting death is the first one that Naperville police have had to investigate in nearly three years.

The victim lived in a townhouse owned by his parents for several years. Now, the family was herE. But they were too distraught to talk with us.

"We're trying to make that determination. We're using crime scene evidence to determine exactly what happened and where it happened," said Commander Ken Parcel, Naperville Police.

The commander says the police were called to the neighborhood following a phone call reporting shots being heard in the area.

Police say the motive is unknown.

Police are looking for an African American male between 18 and 25 years old, 5'6" to 5'8" tall, wearing a black knit stocking cap, black bandana, and red t-shirt with a black design. The second suspect is also an African American male, between 18 to 25 years old, 5'6" to 5'8" tall, wearing a black bandana and a black t-shirt.

The area where the body was found is mostly residential.

"It's a safe neighborhood with kids and grandparents and everybody going out for a walk. There's never been any such incident before," said resident Surekha Prabhu.

"I'm very concerned and very worried. I've been worried because I've heard about problems before," said resident Mary Lorge.

Lorge says she is so worried she is thinking of selling her townhouse.

Police said they received the call from a cell phone user and they're trying to determine who that cell phone user is.
